These two are total opposites, and in this first book, they are paired up. They must complete a job together for a mutual friend of sorts. Their very different backgrounds though means there is some tension between the two, and makes it hard for them to work as one to successfully complete the job.

Holter Graham narrates a lot of Sherrilyn Kenyon’s books. Most recently before picking this up, I had re-listened to one of the books from her The League series so had some time where we were still learning the characters, and I was struggling to not associate his voice with characters in the other books. Once I overcame that though, I very quickly was carried away and through the story.

December & Bookie Trials TBR

I’m going to start this post off with the Bookie Trials TBR. Also, I wanted to take a moment to ask, what crazy idea is it to have a readathon, but the goal is to read the fewest number of books? The Winter Bookie Trials runs from midnight December 2 – 11:59 pm December 8 (your local timezone). There are 11 challenges, and the story behind this quest is we are trying to save our Daemons from the Evil Enchanter. To save our Daemons, we must read as few books as possible. I have managed to find 2 books to complete all 11 quests.

The battles in the tournament are something else. In them, we learn something about Kate, and she is forced to do something and risk giving away her past which she is trying to keep secret. She is worried about how others will react to this piece of her past. I’m not going to say what it is, because, spoiler. You’ll just have to read the book to find out.

Sunday Post #61: A Bit of Fall Cleaning

Well, the weather surprised me and the snow melted in time for this weekend. This meant we were able to get what leaves there were off the lawn and into bins and bags to be composted. There are still many leaves still on the trees though, so things may still get interesting.

For the battles you win, you gain points but those points come from your opponent who just lost. If you lose all your points, you can never again enter Brain Burst. Obviously the players want to avoid loosing all their points.

I love the way Lorelei changes her voice so well. I believe she is Mercy. Mercy comes alive like she is someone I can get in my car and drive to. (It would be a bit of a drive for me since I’m in Michigan, and I believe she is in California. I don’t remember exactly, I do remember it would be a drive through several states.) Not only does she nail Mercy, in my opinion, but she gets the other characters too.
